Day 1 - Card for Stretch Your Stamps 2!

Yeah OCC's Stretch Your Stamps 2 class has started! Background stamps were the most difficult ones for me to find in my stash - I don't have a lot that are large background stamps and very few with a reverse image. Today's card features a reverse image stamp and uses Shari Carroll's faux watercolor stamping technique. While I love her tile technique - I stink at lining up shapes SO I  decided to do a pared down version of the tiles. I was inspired to create a halloween card based on the distressed-ness (not a real word likely) of the stamped background image.

Here we go….

P.S. I MUST get more mini Distress Inks like NOW so I can have more range for these water coloring techniques that I am loving right now! Shopping trip time!

Here is a detail shot of so you can see the glitteryness from my Wink of Stella pen…

Thanks for checking out my card!

Ingredients: PTI Boo to You (halloween word), Happy Haunting (ghost die, ghost eyes), One Liners: Happy; Misc Gems
